European towns

Which are the most mesmerizing towns of Ireland? (Part 7)

Malahide

Only over 35 minutes north of Dublin is one charming fishing town in Ireland. Malahide has, similar to so many Irish towns, one castle as well as demesne that are regarded as being enough of a draw to this region. Yet, it is the big marina that is the most endearing feature of Malahide. The town has one small beach, and over the estuary here are no fewer than various golf clubs. There is also one pleasant coastal walk from Malahide to Portmarnock. Although a lot of people see Malahide as one good day trip from Dublin, several hotels in town are available for those who prefer to be away from the hustle of the big city.

Westport

Defining features of Westport are the malls that are the Carrowbeg River’s either side – the river runs through the heart of town. Here, the Georgian buildings, as well as design, were the work of famous British architect James Wyatt that is known for the designs of many buildings, including Woolwich’s Royal Military Academy. The town is regarded as being among the best in Ireland, not only in terms of its charm but also its quality of life quality. In Westport, one of the primary draws is the surrounding scenery, which has Croagh Patrick, one mountain to which a lot of people make a pilgrimage yearly for the summer solstice.

Oughterard

It is located in County Galway. Loughs, as well as hills, surround it. Oughterard is famous as one angling center, with Lough Corrib, known as the Republic of Ireland’s largest lake, being an excellent fish source. The town itself is often considered an excellent location to stay when looking to discover the surrounding countryside. There are some castles here; Aughnanure is one impressive structure that dates back to the 16th century.
